The top product from the Rochefort Trappist brewery. Dark color, full and very impressive taste. Strong plum, raisin, and black currant palate, with ascending notes of vinousness and other complexities.

In my second round of Battle of the Belgians it was Rochefort 10 vs. St Bernardus 12 and the two were neck and neck. The Rochefort was stronger. The pour was a dark brown that you could not see through. Thick tan puffy head with a lot of lacing. The aroma was dark fruit and yeast. The taste was a strong mix of dark fruits, yeast and even an aftertaste of chocolate after it warmed up. I hate raisins but in beer they are OK. Alcohol burn is present but does not feel like 11.3%.

Discrete, but fresh and fruity aroma - dark plum, no coffee. Creamy, full taste, sweet and fruity with a spicy warmth of alcohol that is a tad too prominent for me. Less balanced and full than the Westvleteren 12, imho, but still an experience.

I prefer the Rochefort trappists (8 and 10) above the St Sixtus. Not only that, but it is everywhere available at a reasonably price. What i like is the fact that you don’t have to wait 3 months before consuming it like a westie. The carbonation is just how i like it and the foam is always present. Carbonation and foam last at least half an hour, which is the time you should take anyway to enjoy this godgiven present. Very very attractive indeed. A great surplus is the consistency between different brews/batches. Not something i can say about the westies.

Pours an opaque, very dark brown, almost black color that creates a light, but frothy head. A malty, raisin aroma followed by smooth, balanced palate. Lightly sweet flavor with an almost creamy texture, finishing off with a great aftertaste. An amazing beer.

Worth the price. Accurately ranked so high. Pours purely with a nice robust head. The flavor is tremendous and long lasting. Best drank with some dark belgian chocolate

Bottle, pours a deep cloudy brown with a nice tan head that slowly turns patchy. Wow, the aroma grabs your attention from across the room, and is bursting with plum, raisin, apricot, blackberry, and too many more dark fruits to even put my finger on. The taste is creamy and rich, slight carbonation, with plenty to ponder on the palate, and just a touch of alcohol blending in. Easy to see why this is at the top of the beer world.

Holy crap. I was surprised that I could even find this locally. The flavor is amazing, the smell is amazing, and best of all is the taste as it goes down. I appreciate it as one of the best beers in the world, even if it isnt my favorite to sit around and drink. Try it and appreciate the fine craftsmanship.

Great dark raisin color and aroma. A sublime taste of raisin and plums backed by the wonderful warmth of the high alchol. Put me down for the ascending notes of vinousness and other complexities too. good finish on the palate. Great beer.
